2. Consider any five I/O devices of your choice. Based on the type of I/O device, assign some suitable
priority to each I/O device considered. Each I/O device can raise interrupt for the CPU at any time for
doing Input/Ouput. Discuss in detail with a suitable diagram how priority interrupt can be managed
between choosen I/O devices and CPU when using following methods:
a. Daisy-chaining priority interrupt
b. Polling
(10 + 10 = 20 Marks)
(5 + 5 = 10 Marks)
c. Give your reflection on advantages and disadvateges of using daisy-chaining priority
interrupt and polling for managing priority interrupt.
(5 Marks)
3. Consider the following diagram showing transfer of data among CPU, Main Memory and Cache.
a. Discuss with a suitable diagram how data can be transferred between main memory
and cache memory given in diagram above, when using following methods:
i. Direct mappping
(8 + 7 = 15 Marks)
ii. Set-Associative mapping
(5 + 5 = 10 Marks)
b. Discuss in detail the performance obtained when CPU performs total of 3,450,000

3. Third Offence of Academic Integrity Violation
If a student is caught a third time in an act of Academic Integrity Violation for an assessment
component irrespective of coursework or end semester (in a subsequent semester), the student
